This DVD brings back some fond memories. Watching this as a kid and thinking you were so anarchic for doing so. The show instantly hit you in the face as soon as Paul Hardcastles theme tune kicked in, with flashy 80's graphics on the opening titles. This show had attitude, was well produced, and was the best programme on TV at the time. Watching it again I realised its not lost that edge. Its still just as funny, just as sophisticated watching it 20 years later. Which is a big testament to just how good the material was from all of its contributors. It has not lost any of its punch and attitude. Some of the gags have dated because they were topical at the time. Apart from that, I was suprised at just how fresh it is to watch 20 years later. Highlights have to be Ben Eltons stand up routines, The Dangerous Brothers (Rik & Ade at their best), The Oblivion Boys (Stephen Frost & Mark Arden), Craig Charles moving and reactionary poems and of course the great Stavros. There are clips of the brilliant Steven Wright and Emo Phillips maybe the best stand ups from across the pond at that time.

My only grumble is that this could of been released as a DVD Box Set of each full episode. So that it included all the bands they had performing, and even including the dross that was admittedly few and far between. There are no extra's on this DVD which is a real shame. Well if there was, I couldnt find them, but I had downed a bottle of vodka whilst watching both discs from start to finish. I couldnt switch it off.

Saturday Live was an era of british comedy that we should all be proud of, something that us thirtysomethings will always remember as the show that shaped our teenage years. It was awesome then, and its still awesome now.

This DVD is a gem and should of been released years ago.

What can you say about this long gone, sadly missed series apart from SUPERB. So glad its on DVD otherwise, it would be lost forever. Not to be missed especially Harry Enfields Stavros "Hello Matey Peeps"!

I seem to remember this series being funnier than anything on this DVD. However, still watchable, especially for the Dangerous Brothers.

DVD arrived promptly. Very nostalgic as I remember watching it on tv when it first aired. Some bits were dated, and just don't seem funny now, but other bits were still as funny.
